Last April, I had the privilege of traveling to the Colorado Springs area to photograph one of the most wonderful weddings I’ve done to date. Brandon and Kandra are one of those couples who are perfect together, and the joy of the day was present in every detail and person who attended. Kandra and I go WAY back, as our families are great friends of ours. We have old photos of Kandra and I playing together as babies, and we’ve always felt so loved and supported by her family. It made her wedding day that much sweeter to see my old friend marry her best friend, and I couldn’t approve of Brandon more. They are wonderful! This was one of those weddings where I didn’t feel like I was working. Rather, I was along for the ride and was so happy to capture all of it. Their wedding and reception was held at The Pinery at Black Forest, which is a gorgeous venue. Speaking of gorgeous, let’s talk about those Jimmy Choo shoes… I may have drooled a little over these beauties. Enjoy some favorites from the day, and cheers to Brandon and Kandra!
The second leg of our trip took us up to Beaver Creek and Vail, Colorado, where we ate, hiked, biked, and explored. It was gorgeous! I’m discovering a trend in my travels each year… something about the west always draws me in and beckons me to come. It has such a hold on me and it always will. Enjoy!
A couple of weeks ago, Zach and I took some much needed time off and traveled west. We had such a fun time during our week full of great sights, great food, great weather, great entertainment, and most of all, great company. Santa Fe was our first stop, and though we were only there for one full day and evening, there was so much to see. After an unforgettable margarita and meal at The Shed restaurant our first night, we plopped down on the grass in the Plaza, ate ice cream, and listened to a couple of great bands as part of their summer concert series. It was a summer evening for the books! The art was beautiful and the food was even more incredible. Here are some favorites from our time in Santa Fe!
My handsome husband is 25 today! I really don’t know what I would do without him. He is a special gift from God and I’m so thankful we were brought together by the powers that be. I’m so ridiculously proud of all Zach has accomplished in his 25 short years of life, and it blows my mind to see how hard he is working to achieve his dreams of becoming a doctor. I don’t know how he manages to stay so level, calm and driven, all the while being an incredible husband who shows me so much love and support EVERY SINGLE DAY. How I managed become the proud wife of this smart, hilarious, sweet and devilishly handsome man is beyond me, but I praise God for the endless joy he brings to our lives. He fills my heart so full. Today is about celebrating the wonderful man he is and will continue to be. Zach, I’m so proud of you and I love you with all of my heart.
Thank you for being wonderful you.
We had a bridal session with Jordan that had so many great shots, but there is something about these portraits of Jordan from her actual wedding day that keep me coming back to them. She had such a glow about her on the big day, so here are a few favorites. Thanks for letting me part of your special day!
You may or may not remember a post from last summer about my first experience with birth photography. It was an experience I’ll never forget and one I hope to do many more times in the future! A lot of things made the experience extra special, especially being able to capture this moment in my best friend’s life when Roslyn Kate came into the world. Since then, sweet Roslyn has grown so much and is the sweetest baby on the planet. I can’t believe she is already almost 10 months old! This girl is all smiles and her two-tooth smile melts everyone who is lucky enough to see her. She is an adventurous red-headed beauty, and watching her grow is one of life’s sweetest blessings. Here are some favorites from her 9-month session!
